We’ve all seen bad advertising. Really bad advertising. It’s pretty much everywhere, right? But today I was stopped dead in my online tracks. My jaw dropped. It was so horrific I thought for sure Omaha.com had been hacked by some prankster.
But alas, it’s real. LowerMyBills is known for some crappy ads, but this takes the cake. They actually paid someone to create this abomination. What’s worse, some hack used flash to create it. Wonder if they proudly display it in their portfolio? What’s really sad is that it is soooo horrifically bad that it’s probably getting good results. People like me, who were so shocked by it, we felt compelled to click to find out who was behind it.

And to add insult to injury, it gets even worse. Click to reload a few times and you’ll be presented with food fight grannies.
Sad. And we wonder why people think so little of our industry.
